AVN420 - IPTV H.264 encoder blade for Composite

overview
Visionary Solutions’ IPTV encoders can turn video from S-Video or Composite
sources into full-screen, full resolution Internet Protocol digital video,
compatible with multicast, webcast and video-on-demand protocols, in real
time.
The AVN420 encodes standard definition video in an h.264 stream (MPEG-4
Part 10/AVC) and is IGMP v3 multicast capable. It’s used in a Media Processing
Platform (MPP), a high density rack mount system. Plug a video source directly
into the blade, plug into the network via the RJ-45 connection, and stream realtime digital video over your LAN or WAN. The MPP with AVN420 blades is
suitable for all applications requiring cost-effective, low bit rate, standard
definition video distribution over IP networks.
Features
Superior Audio/Video Quality
h.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10/AVC) hardware compression and Visionary
Solutions’ optimized transmission technology provides a video image
at full frame rates and D1 resolution. The video stream can be
viewed by an unlimited number of clients on a LAN or WAN with
25fps PAL or 30fps NTSC assured, provided that bandwidth is
available. Image resolutions are configurable from D1 (720x480
NTSC, 720x576 PAL) down to 160x120. The video bit rate can be
configured from 100 kbps to 4 Mbps. The audio compression is
either AAC or MPEG-1 Layer 2 audio encoding at 8 to 384 kbps
with up to 48 KHz sample rate.
Video Inputs
The AVN420 includes one BNC composite input and one S-Video
input for connecting video source equipment.
Audio Inputs
A terminal block connector provides audio inputs for Balanced and
Unbalanced connections. This allows for easy onsite connections
regardless of the cabling outputs of the audio source. The AVN420
features user control of audio parameters, including mute, pre-amp
and volume.
External Device Connections
The AVN420 includes a serial connection via an RJ-45 connector.
This connector can be used as an RS-232 port (fullduplex, no hand
shaking) or an RS-422 (full-duplex) port. These ports allow the
AVN420 to interface with external devices such as terminal
emulation equipment.
Management & Configuration
of the device is accomplished by any of four methods: PackeTV™
Manager (2nd generation), console menus, a Web interface, or the
AVN Control Protocol API. TCP/ IP, HTTP and other Internet-related
protocols are supported.
The IPTV Media Processing Platform from Visionary Solutions is a high density rack mountable blade
system. The MPP1700 platform, pictured at right, with dual redundant power scheme, will hold up to seventeen single
slot encoder blades, or a combination of dual and single slot blades.
The MPP200 has a single power source and can hold two single slot
encoder blades or one dual slot blade. Each Media Processing
Platform will incorporate a growing family of modules to support
transport, switching, transcoding and monitoring of IPTV.
